Maday’s Mayday – Game 17

April 22, 2012

Clicking the line score takes you to the full box score.

 Record : 8-9 (3 GB of Harrisburg in Western Division)
Attendance : 3,326
Time: 2:55 

The Flying Squirrels jumped out early against Altoona’s starter Aaron Poreda. After that, though, Altoona’s bullpen slammed the door. Poreda worked five  innings allowing three runs (two earned) on five walks and three strikeouts. He threw 88 pitches, 41 for strikes. Kyle Cofield was the first out of the bullpen. He worked a perfect inning. Victor Black had his first multiple inning outing of the year. He worked 1.2 innings walking three and striking out two. Duke Welker picked up his first win of the year, closing out the last 1.1 innings for Altoona. He threw 17 pitches, 11 for strikes, and allowed only one hit.

Craig Westcott got the start for Richmond and struggled mightily with his command. In 5.1 innings he allowed three runs on four hits, five walks, and one strikeout. Austin Fleet followed Westcott and worked 1.2 innings. He allowed one hit, two walks, and struck out two. Daryl Maday got the eighth inning in hopes of keeping the game tied, but had easily his worst outing of the year. In his one inning he allowed five runs (four earned) on five hits and one walk.

Aldaberto Santos had another big game at the plate, he went 2-for-4 with a double and driving in three runs. Matt Curry and Brock Holt both added two hits for Altoona. Curry and Ramon Cabrera both drove in two runs.

The Flying Squirrels certainly had better days at the plate. Daniel Mayora was the only Richmond batter to collect multiple hits, going 2-for-4. Wes Hodges, Eliezer Zambrano, and Craig Westcott all collected one hit.

Richmond has the day off tomorrow before starting a series in Reading on Tuesday.

– Gary Brown went 0-for-2 today, but did walk twice. This brings his K/BB up to a respectable 10/6. He also got on the right side of 50% in the steal category, swiping two today. He now sits with 3 steals to 2 caught stealing.

– As a team, Richmond was 2-for-12 with RISP today.
